MDwise Marketplace to again offer insurance to Hoosiers in 71 counties

11/14/2014
 
INDIANAPOLIS–MDwise, a nonprofit health insurance company based in Indiana offering plans in the 2014 Health Insurance Marketplace, will again offer its services to uninsured and underinsured Hoosiers in 71 counties across the state.

A number of Marketplace Renew or Enroll events are slated throughout the state beginning Nov. 15, when the enrollment period officially begins. Current MDwise Marketplace members who have coverage will automatically renew and continue to have access to the best and broadest health care networks in Indiana. These individuals may also re-enroll and select a different plan.

MDwise offers Bronze, Silver and Gold products to ensure Indiana residents have a variety of options to best meet their health insurance needs. In 2015, there will be no out-of-pocket costs for in-network primary care office visits. Just as last year, enrollees eligible for subsidies to offset the premium cost can calculate their options directly on the MDwise Marketplace website.

In contrast to the narrow network approach of other Indiana Marketplace plans, MDwise offers a large network that includes Indiana’s top-ranked hospitals and physicians from Eskenazi Health, Indiana University Health, Franciscan Alliance, Parkview Health System, St. Joseph Regional Health System, St. Vincent Health and other hospitals. MDwise Marketplace offers the ability to choose from a wide variety of doctors, hospitals and pharmacies conveniently located close to home.

“We are pleased to be able to participate in the federal Marketplace again, to help our current members continue on the health insurance plan of their choice,” said Charlotte MacBeth, president of MDwise. “Our Marketplace Guides are ready to provide assistance to those interested in renewing their MDwise policy or learning about their options and enrolling for the first time.”

For more information about the MDwise Marketplace and to see a schedule of Marketplace Renew or Enroll events around the state, visit MDwiseMarketplace.org or call a MDwise Marketplace Guide at 855.417.5619 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week.
